Buffalo Bills defensive tackle is his team’s nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. It is the second year in a row that Phillips has had his name up for the honor.
A highly-coveted award, the honor recognizes an NFL player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field. Nominees from each team all receive up to $40,000 toward a charity of their choice.
The winning player receives $250,000.
During his entire tenure with the Bills, Phillips has been an active member of the community.
According to the team’s website, Phillips does much of his current work through his Playmakers Organization which supports children that are developmentally or physically different.
His latest event was during the Thanksgiving Weekend:
